Expert Quotes:

Aesthetically, the Rogue has become a lot more interesting, morphing from a fairly featureless blob of a crossover to something that shows some teeth.
Motor Trend

we think the oddly jacked-up rear end is the Rogue's most awkward angle.
Automobile

The Nissan family look is in full force, with more than a passing resemblance to the bigger Pathfinder that's evident from every angle.

the front and profile look great, though there's some awkwardness to the rear end.

Design-wise the Rogue stands fairly equal to its biggest competitors
Yahoo Autos

The Rogue embraces a new styling theme, one that dresses up its familiar proportions with more interesting surfaces and frankly, a more mass-market appeal.

Nissan's done a positively Honda-like job in the past few years, evolving styling in gradual steps to remove the odder flourishes of the past. Remember the last Rogue's crazy grille treatments? They're broomed. There's a more straightforward grille bracketed by angled chrome bars and braced by LED running lamps. The side and fender sculpting's borrowed some lessons from the wild Juke--and clearly has seen the latest Santa Fe and CX-5, from the look of the chamfered taillamps. All the details push the Rogue's corners in more evocative directions than the plainer first-generation crossover.

Inside, Nissan has delivered a more handsomely finished interior, one with higher-quality materials. It's not damning it with faint praise, to call it elegantly ordinary. It's laid out for quick perception, with round knobs for climate control and audio framing a center stack with an LCD monitor, and a cowl over the gauges balanced out by a slight dip over a pair of slim vents. It's not wildly conceived with all-touch interfaces or asymmetrical lines or a shower of single-function buttons--and we're kind of in love with it for that reason.

 

Conclusion

The Rogue's been mainstreamed, in the right ways, with a more crisp outline and a much more refined cabin.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
